The family of Russel Radebaugh was presented with an honor in his memory by the Town of Cedaredge on July 16.
Radebaugh had served as a town trustee and member of the charter commission. He passed away on June 24.
Mayor Pat Means presented a certificate of appreciation for his service to members of the family who attended the regular trustee meeting for the event.
In other business at its July 16 regular meeting, the Cedaredge Town Board dealt with the following matters:
• Larry Murphy, golf pro, gave credit to local resident Bob Page for working to increase participation in the Partners fundraiser tournament.
• Trustees were informed that dirt moving work has begun at the site of the new sewer treatment plant.
• Town work crews are applying sealant to sections of exposed aggregate sidewalk downtown. The work is costing $5,000 and needs to be done regularly, trustees were told.
• The police department has purchased one personal body camera for $1,400, the chief reported. It will be used for special assignments like crime scene investigation. Other less expensive units may be bought soon for officers to use on duty.
• Two trees were damaged at the skate park. One was deliberately killed by having the bark stripped from its trunk, the police chief reported.
• Word will soon get around town, Police chief Dan Sanders said, that the municipal judge is putting people in jail for committing theft.
• Trustees set up a schedule of hearings and workshops for the 2016 budget beginning with the annual budget retreat on Sept. 3.
Thanks to the efforts of state Rep. Millie Hamner, House District 61, Colorado State University plans to re-open the Rogers Mesa research site.
The facility was taken out of operation in 2011, due to budget cuts throughout the CSU system.
